‘There is only one football champion in Scotland,
and its colours are maroon and khaki.'
The Edinburgh Evening News
Edinburgh’s Heart of Midlothian Football club have won 19 of 21 matches and are on the brink of winning the Scottish League Championship. When, in a show of extraordinary comradery and courage, 13 of their players volunteer to serve together in McCrae’s Battalion - destined to fight in France.
This is their story.
An evocative and dramatic journey through Tynecastle Park led by the players/soldiers in a unique site-specific performance.
Follow The Hearts from the football fields of Gorgie, to the battlefields of the Somme.
